Every day the internet produces an astounding amount of goodies and gems. Most hilarious, some amusing, but all worth at least a few seconds of your time. We here at Nerd Bastards try to bring you the best bits of news and nerdery the webz has to offer, with a bit of snark thrown in. But sometimes not everything makes the cut. Monday through Friday we’ll be bringing you our inbox leftovers, our forgotten bookmarks, the nerdy bits that simply slipped through the cracks. You can submit items to Nerdy Bits by emailing us at

Above: Yeah, how’s that for a mind fuck: King Joffrey and an adorable puppy. Technically, it’s actor Jack Gleason who everyone says is a total sweetie, even though he plays a colossal dick on Game of Thrones. Watch the Vine here. [The Mary Sue]


In York there is a maze, created in the shape of a Dalek that spans 18 acres! Created by Tom Pearcy to celebrate Doctor Who‘s 50th anniversary, the maze is the largest in Europe. Look to the Daily Mail for more photos, Doctors 1 and 11 are also in the maze below the Dalek. [Doctor Who TV]


These little mushrooms wont’s give you an extra life, but they do contain delicious, pizza-y goodness. They’re pizza rolls that look like 1up’s from Super Mario Bros., get it? Created by Chris-Rachael Oseland of Kitchen Overlord, get you hands on the recipe here. [Laughing Squid]


In news of other foods that look like things, coming to a Japan near you: Lightsaber Pocky. Honestly, I’m a little surprised it took quite so long for this to happen. [Laughing Squid]


Wow. This tattoo looks exactly like armor! I particularly love the attention to detail, like the scarring and the chunk missing out of the top. It’s just beautiful. Excellent work from Dmitry Bronya. [Fashionably Geek]


Watch Grayson Boucher, professional streetballer, school everyone on the court while dressed as Spider-Man. [Fashionably Geek]

The Doctor and Clara show up unexpectedly at the BBC Proms! Which is really, Matt Smith and Jenna-Louise Coleman doing a Doctor Who bit in the orchestra, but still good fun. [The Mary Sue]
